This one having advanced graphics and a high functionality, Icomania gives you an intuitive app with a solid graphic based interface to help you get guided through a process of guessing movies thorough a gamified way so that you test your skills and your level on the movie-buff-o-meter.

icomania 1Very similar to the 4 pics 1 word in the overall feel of the game, the only difference in this fun-packed movie guessing game is that there is a single image and being from the movie, any movie of which you may or may not have seen, or may or may not have heard of.

The Icomania app layout is simple with the bar at the top stating the number of points you gain on cracking the below puzzle, the number of the puzzle within the round of the game and a speaker to hear things out loud.

Below this, you will be displayed an image which says “Guess the movie” above it. It’s simple when you know what scene the below movie belongs to, and if you don’t, the choice of letters from below allows you to narrow down your doubt as to which movie the image belongs to.

There is the Alphabet hint and the bomb hint both of which have been added in there to make easy your guesses but the interesting part is when this comes at a cost.

Each round that you crack gets you points that are displayed at the top.

The more you ear, the higher the score you get but the fun part is when these points are held ransom when you need a hint.

A fair rule that eats into your points earned to reveal the hint with you makes you want to conserve those points and get you to think harder.

Pretty well-crafted for a puzzle game isn’t it?

The hints primarily involve alphabets revealed where the blank spaces are filled by a letter so you get an idea of what word should fit in there.

The next hint is the bomb that will blast out a few letter s from the grid so that it further narrows down the number of letters that you have to guess from.

In addition to movies, the Icomania app also has TV shows for you to guess from, cartoons and much more.

With scrambled letters in the jumble, this brain tickling game created for you and your movie mates during parties.

The game is for free on the Android play Store and has a relatively smaller base of users. The reviews for Icomania have been overwhelmingly positive so far with the app garnering a solid 4.5 star average rating on Google Play Store, this game does deserve a try out as it is sure to deliver a sliver of the nostalgia you felt watching Celebrity Jeopardy in your childhood.
